One of our favorite things to do when we were dating and engaged was to go out to the park right by my apartment and put down a blanket and spend an evening under the stars. We would talk about all kinds of things and it was a lot of fun. Since we've gotten married we haven't done a whole lot of it, so I thought it would be fun to include it as a date this month
Of course pretty much the whole month of December has been frigid or rainy/cloudy. So last night, when the skies cleared some and it was in the 60s we decided to try it out before the temperature drops to below 20 tonight!
It had rained yesterday, so the ground was still wet, so we set our picnic blanket up on top of a picnic table by our neighborhood school and camped out there for a while.
We watched the moon and some stars and the clouds move across the sky. We talked about this Christmas and all of the exciting things ahead next year. It was a great night with my guy!
